(90% Cinsault and 10% Syrah from an old vine plot above the village of Roussels) Lovely bright aromatics, spice, licorice, cherry, damson and mulberry. Herby, sappy and nicely grippy, fresh woodland fruits, spice and then a nice tannic depth to the finish. L&S (Oct 2016)

90% Cinsault and 10% Syrah from an old vine plot above the village of Roquessels in Languedoc. 100-year-old vines. Solid and friendly with some sweetness and good interest for the money. GV Drinking range: 2018 - 2020 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Oct 2017)

From a 100-year-old plot of Cinsault (with 10% Syrah), a variety that couldn't have been more unfashionable in the second half of the 20th century and couldn't have become more fashionable in the last five years. L'Etranger shows what a lovely grape variety Cinsault can be when yields are kept in check, either by age (as here) or careful management. Juicy, supple and racy with a light touch of tannin and humming with vibrant, spicy, sweet cherry and red berry fruit. Rating: 90 www.thewinegang.com (Oct 2017)

Domaine des Trinités

The transition from IT to viticulture is not a path well-trodden, but after working and loving a number of harvests in his youth, Simon Coulshaw decided that it was the path he was going to walk. The wines from Domaine des Trinités are a true reflection of the passions of their maker and his interest in terroir and local varieties.

The property is roughly divided by 15 hectares falling into the AOC Faugeres appellation, producing elegant and spicy wines, and the remaining 9 hectares in AOC Pézenas Coteaux de Langeudoc, where the wines are full of fruit.
